home made gunpowder
sulphur powder, iron filings, bonfire, gcse clay 'art', deoderant canister (lynx africa), pestle, mortar.

-nick some sulphur and iron filings from the chemistry lab.
-borrow your mums pestle and mortar
-mix different quantities 'for the sake of science'
-add to art class clay models and throw on garden bonfire.

smelly smoke and lots of pretty sparky fizzing

gunpowder burns fast rather than converts to gas as modern explosive does. this will not destroy your clay model. throwing a deoderant canister on the fire will have the desired effect tho.
